HLS CAS, HLS AG with Dies, Less Is More, Time Out


Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good week.

I started making this card a few days ago for Less Is More (colour challenge: mainly teal) but have only just had the opportunity to finish it today. 

I've added white die cut butterflies to the background to add interest but still keep it CAS, the butterfly stamps were inked with a marker and misted with water before stamping and I've added little touches of glitter to lift it.

Also linking up to three other challenges:
Time Out - Love and/or Friendship with optional twist of 'spotlight stamping'
 where you add coloured only to one raised area of your image

Such a pretty take on the LIM challenge Sue, the teal and silver glitter are a perfect match.

I never thought of adding die cuts for the background but this is so unique and pretty. I love the watercolor look of the butterfly and the touch of glitter. Great card!
